Its location in the old harour is very nice. The service was great and the food was nothing splecial for looking, but the taste was good.

99% of all restaurants in the harbor area are closed from November through April. Some of the best restaurants that TripAdvisor recommends, are also closed throughout the town. Good time to come because there aren't any tourists, bad time to come if you want to experience the food and do a little shopping.

There are some really wonderful restaurants in Rethymno, but Zefyros tops them all! We visited early in our week's hol as we'd been (several times) last year and couldn't wait to go back. Called again for a lazy lunch on our last day and just had such an amazing time we booked for dinner too. You don't have to book,... More

During a business trip to Greece that extended into the week, a co worker and stumbled upon Zefyros due to the great reviews it received on trip advisor. The waitor was very informative as far as telling us his favorite items on the menu, what he thought we would like, etc. He recommended the Seafood Pasta, and it was crazy... More

We visited many restaurants in Rethymnon and can confirm that this place is the best! Prawns, calamari, sole fish, sea bream, pasta... Everything is fresh and excellent! The service is perfect! The views is on the harbor After eating here it is not possible to eat in others restaurants.

We came to here for lunch. We ordered lobster spaghetti and fishermen's spaghetti (mixed sea food). The taste of food is excellent and the service is also nice. Highly recommend to here.

Might have been the best meal on our trip. The halloumi was amazing, Greek salad tasty and well spiced... fish fresh and cooked to perfection. They also gave you dessert on the house which was nice (a sober). It is not the cheapest place (on the expensive side) but it was worth the money.

More expensive than the average tourist joint on the waterfront (mains start from 15 euros) but for good reason. The hosts were welcoming and subtle (unlike the almost thuggish hard-sell from neighbouring restaurants). The restaurant was very clean and decorated to a much higher standard than similar tavernas, modern and classy. Menu purely fish - but simple and very well... More

Food was good but it was expensive and not the best seafood I've had at restaurant but the location and the owner were nice...just a bit expensive for the food in my opinion.

The waterside location is beautiful and seafood and fish on both nights were excellent. The honey and cinnamon raki he brought to us on... More
